Title: Reporting of Crimes Occurring in Federally Funded Long Term Care Facilities and Enforcement Under Section 1150B of the Social Security Act (CMS-3359) 
Abstract:

This proposed rule would implement federal requirements requiring specific covered individuals in long-term care facilities to report to the Secretary and law enforcement entities any reasonable suspicion that a crime has been committed against a resident of or an individual who is receiving care from such facility. It would also implement requirements of these long-term care facilities to notify such covered individuals of their reporting obligations, as well as their rights under this reporting requirement, and prohibit retaliation for making such reports. Additionally, this proposed rule would establish procedures for imposing civil money penalties and exclusion from participation in any federal health care program for violating the obligations under these requirements. The rule would also provide for hearings and appeals when those penalties and exclusions are imposed.
